I am 70 years old and have owned Bessie since I was 15, a total of 55 years. I had bought her and converted her into a wrecker. She has been a work truck until 1987. At that time I bought my father's collision repair business and did not have time to tow which is still my passion. Over the years, Bessie ever faithful, has sat neglected. But when I had time I would charge the battery, add some fresh gas and start her up just to hear that beloved roar. I sold the business this past December
